DESCRIPTION:

White & Red Shore Minnow (2XS): White body and face with red around eyes, silver ribs with red scale pattern on center rib. Wood lures of this color have solid white bodies; plastic lure have transparent sides and silver scales on belly. This color only came with gold eyes. Introduced in 1937 for River Runt Spooks as well as other Heddon lures.

Red & White Shore Minnow (XRW): In 1946, the color code changed to XRW and the red scale pattern on the center rib disappeared and was replaced with a solid silver center rib. The color name also changed to Red & White Shore Minnow. XRW also came with both gold and yellow eyes. A much later verison of this color had a solid white body and was not transparent. One variation of this color is shown by the Midget River Runt Spook which has a brownish-red or sienna face.

This color is sometimes found without the red face, some because it was poorly painted or wore off and some that it was never applied as shown in the picture. (Picture courtesy of Sam Van Camp!)
